Alcohol is believed to be a factor in an ATV accident near Dauphin Thursday night.

At approximately 9:30 p.m., RCMP were called to a vehicle collision on Highway 20, three kilometres east of Dauphin. The investigation revealed a 15-year-old driver of an ATV lost control and was lying on the roadway when he was struck by a car.

The 15-year-old was transported to hospital for treatment of his injuries. His condition is not known at this time.

The driver of the car, a 45-year-old woman, and the passenger inside the vehicle were not injured.

RCMP say alcohol consumption by the ATV driver is considered a contributing factor in the collision.

The investigation continues.
